Dr. Jianqing Liu Assistant Professor, Electrical & Computer Engineering Department Biography Jianqing Liu joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Alabama in Huntsville in August 2018 as an assistant professor. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Florida in 2018 and B.Eng. degree from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 2013. Dr. Liu’s research interests include wireless networking, network security and data privacy for various information systems like advanced communications networks, mobile health, clouding computing, IoT, etc. His research approach is to bring convex optimization, game theory, cryptography and statistical tools (e.g., Bayesian models, differential privacy) to develop high-efficiency and security protocols and to validate design both in simulations and experiments. Dr. Liu is the recipient of the 2018 Best Journal Paper Award from IEEE Technical Committee on Green Communications & Computing (TCGCC) and the Best Paper Award from 2012 IEEE Workshop on Microwave and Millimeter Wave Circuits and System Technology (MMWCST). He also served as the system administrator for IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology in 2014-2017.
